What is your favorite kaiju and why? If you don't have a favorite movie, then name your favorite monster from any kaiju ever.
Personally my favorite is Gojira because that is what started the whole kaiju genre. Also, without this kaiju there would be no Ghidorah, no Mothra, no Rodan, etc, etc. On a serious note though, this kaiju showed just how frightened Japan was of radiation and nuclear warfare (considering that they actually experienced these horrors first-hand).
